In the aqueducts the drinking water is channeled in penstock in pressure to be conveyed towards the loading tanks that supply the primary distribution network. The hydroelectric turbines can be installed in the existing plant in order to recover the hydraulic energy, which otherwise should be dissipated, transforming it into electricity.
The Pelton and Banki turbines IREM ECOWATT HYDRO special for hydroelectric plant installed on aqueduct, reply to the legislation about the manufacturing process and materials usable in contact with water for human consumption governed in Europe by the European Directive 98/83/CE, in Italy DM 174/2004 and in France ACS (Attestation de Conformité Sanitaire). Both the conformity to D.M.174/2004 and the ACS –amongst the most restrictive standards in Europe – are certified by an external company.
The value-added of the certification:
- Risk analysis
- Tracking of certified materials
- Migration test
- Certification of production standards
- Specific Manual
The most important features for the hydroelectric turbines installed on aqueducts for drinking water:
DM 174/2004 ITALY – ACS FRANCE
Referring to the specific applications on aqueduc, the hydroelectric turbines IREM Ecowatt Hydro are in compliance with the European Directive 98/83/CE “Regulation of the quality of water for human consumption” governed in Italy by DM 174/2004 and in France by DGS/SDA7A n° 571 dated 25/12/2002. All turbines are cover of a Declaration of Conformity IREM to the DM 174/2004 and ACS (Attestation de Conformité Sanitaire).
All automatic devices are equipped with electrical actuators allowing the total absence of lubricating oils with a particular attention to the environmental and the public-health.
